Dining in the Arts District

For many Undermain patrons, seeing a show at the theatre goes hand-in-hand with dining at one of Deep Ellum’s homey establishments. You may feel that a great show is served best with a side of warm sweet potato chips from Twisted Root Burger Co. or a slice of All Good Café’s unbeatable rhubarb pie (a la mode, of course.) We couldn’t agree more. But since we’re venturing out into the Arts District for Penelope this winter, we thought you’d like to move your dining experience into new territory as well. Here are a few recommendations from Undermain staff members about where to enjoy your pre-Penelope dinner or post-Penelope drinks.

For a quick, casual bite, Special Events Coordinator, Liz Acklin likes to venture down to the Arts District’s food truck court. If the words “street food” conjure images of greasy hot dogs and pretzels, you haven’t tried this fare. These high-end food trucks offer everything from gourmet vegetarian food to Vietnamese fusion. You may catch Liz grabbing a side of kimchee fries from her favorite truck, ssahm BBQ which specializes in Korean tacos.
